Some latest news about our journey towards collaboration excellence 🙂 Just recently I received the certification for passing the online learning initiative from Rochester Institute of Technology about: Teamwork & Collaboration. I really enjoyed this class and I can fully recommend this MOOC for all of you who are interested in individual development and learning! A great course!

After revisiting fundamental information about SCRUM roles, rituals and values, I thought a moment about my first experiences with agile product development as a Product Owner. The core values like Commitment, Courage, Respect, Openness and Motivation may be familiar to many practitioners, but nobody told us about how to keep them alive during daily business, or how we can protect our teams and stakeholders from external influences. It seems that in organizations where SCRUM development is new, dedicated communication and information to external stakeholders is key to explain SCRUM – roles and -rituals that are different to classical project-management.

It is far from clear to us why we like people or not. Whether it’s people from private life or people you meet in sports or in professional life, you put these people in a category and thus unconsciously makes a certain judgment, which can sometimes be positive and sometimes negative. And I do not mean now the famous “chemistry” between people, which sets in at the first meeting, but rather I mean a kind of judgment that develops purely out of belonging to a group (“Ingroup – Outgroup bias”, Tajfel 1970) )
